Jim Parks is most widely known as the veteran host of HGTV's remodeling show, "New Spaces," which has been enjoyed by television audiences for over nine years.  Today's Green Minute was born as Jim was doing research for a magazine series. He discovered the wealth of innovation being generated in the green world and set out to write a weekly newspaper column. An audio podcast version soon followed, and now video.  One of the things The Lansing Star is proud of is that we are a green, electronic newspaper.  You don't even have to recycle the Star.  This feature offers more on how to make your world greener.  Every few weeks a new episode will be added so check back often.

Pet of the Week

BinksPoor Binks, one of our most handsome black kitties, was found abandoned at a home in Lansing. Despite this neglect, he loves people and hopes to be someone’s new loyal companion. When you sit down, he’ll approach you with a head butt and soft meow. If you're having a bad day, he’ll sit next to you and share some purrs with you. If you're excited, he’ll run around and play too! At two years young, Binks has a full lifetime to be your best friend. Although he was diagnosed with FIV, he will live a completely normal life, other than the fact that he will need to be an indoor only kitty and should be the only feline in the home. However, if you have an FIV positive cat already in your home, that would work out just fine! Come spend some time with him, fall in love like the rest of us have, and offer him a second chance at life – he deserves it!
